ONE: This straight-line landscape of roads and pillars and fences breaks --- momentarily --- under Chelsea Bridge when we find an iron wheel spiking towards the Power Station.
TWO: Battersea Power Station dominates the landscape. It stays with us for the duration of the walk; a floating spectre when out of view. By the end, I feel I have seen it from all angles.
THREE: Look down and the river slows us as we watch the pattern of the flow. Look up, there’s a tree thick with leaves, look behind and the road is energised with traffic. Ahead, it’s chimneys and glass-fronted towers.
FOUR: But someone must sleep here, I can see their duvet cover stuffed between two benches.
